Pure ceremonial-grade cacao is naturally bitter and therefore can be mixed with sweetener & additions of choice. See recipe on the Preparation page and enjoy this powerful, heart opening medicine.
KAKAO is a high-vibe, ceremonial-grade drinking chocolate made from whole cacao beans. Our cacao is sourced from Peru in the native strain called 'Chuncho' via direct trade.
A large part of KAKAO's non-profit mission is to help protect the native strains of cacao and the communities which cultivate them.

Ingredients & Nutrition
- 100% Whole cacao beans (stone-ground into a paste and then chopped for your convenience)
All of our ingredients are directly sourced in Peru from small, wild farms that are natively owned.
KAKAO is not sold as a block. But rest assured, this is Cacao Paste that you're looking for. If KAKAO was left in the sun, it would melt and return to its original block form, which we simply chopped in a food processor for your convenience! In non-summer months, it will arrive to your doorstep as a granular product that you can scoop easily with a tablespoon.

Introducing the August blessing of KAKAO…The Reciprocity Edition 🤍
With this cup of KAKAO, may I give of my myself in a way that honors everything I have received on my journey. May I embody thoughtfulness in how I reciprocate the blessings in my life. May I allow my life force energy to be used in service to the things, people and places that have shaped me and healed me.
With this cup of KAKAO, I allow myself to receive an abundance of friendships, resources, and experiences that assist me in living at my highest potential. I also take extra pauses to honor all I receive each day. I allow myself to fill up and then overflow into service, giving back to those that have given to me AND serving the medicine onward to others who need it.
I make it less about ‘me,’ and more about being used by love, for love. I allow joy to radiate through my entire being. I hold myself accountable in using my words, actions and resources in truthful reciprocity. I live inside an effortless flow between giving and receiving — filling up to be nurtured and then giving it out as the nurturer.
How can we embody more reciprocity in our lives? How can we be in ‘right relations’ in every area? With the communities we’re inside of, the cacao and other modalities we benefit from, the land we live on, the trails we hike, and beyond? How can we pay it all forward in humble devotion?
The RECIPROCITY edition is now available worldwide on all orders placed in August.
